The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA)-Regional Statistical Services Office (RSSO) X, together with PSA Misamis Oriental, were granted ISO 9001:2015 certification last December 2018. The PSA-Central Office, together with the said PSA offices in Region X, were among the seven (7) PSA Regional Offices (NCR, CAR, Regions II, III, VII and XI) and seven (7) PSA Provincial Offices (Caloocan, Kalinga, Cagayan, Pampanga, Cebu and Compostela Valley) that were given an ISO 9001:2015 certification by the TUV Rheinland.
The PSA effected its ISO Quality Management System (QMS) in January 2018 to continually improve the delivery of statistical and civil registration services to its customers and stakeholders. PSA-RSSO X is among the pilot sites for the implementation of the ISO-QMS. The ISO certification is valid until 2020.
The quest for ISO-QMS was a requirement for all government institutions as per Memorandum Circular 2014- 01 issued by the Government Quality Management Program. The said memorandum states that in order to be qualified for the Performance Based Bonus, all government agencies must achieve at least 90% of its targets, and the must establish a QMS that is aligned with ISO standards for the support of its operations.
The certification is a testimony of how the PSA is continuously evolving and innovating towards a more responsive and world-class organization able to provide stakeholders and the general public with relevant and accurate data as well as the delivery of efficient civil registration services.
The certification affirms PSA’s strong customer orientation as it endeavors to further improve processes and structures for increase efficiency within the organization resulting to better public service. Meanwhile, the PSA expands the QMS project to the non-pilot regions and provinces. Series of trainings are being conducted.
